Custom settings and Custom metadata types both can be deployed to production through Change sets.

To migrate data from Sandbox to production for Custom settings, use Dataloader.

Refer Deploy Custom Metadata Types and Records to Production Orgs Using Change Sets

In case, if you need to import data into Custom metadata type, you need to use Custom Metadata Loader. Refer Load or Update Records with the Custom Metadata Loader
